International Wine CellarGood bright, deep red. Crushed blackberry, cassis and violet on the nose, plus notes of game and bitter chocolate; like a blend of serious Nuits-Saint-Georges and Vosne-Romanee. Offers compelling purity, sweetness and depth of fruit, with a powerful acid structure giving the mid-palate a perfumed quality and carrying the juicy fruit through a resounding, rising finish. There's great back-end grip here without any impression of austerity, thanks to the ripeness of the year. This is incredibly primary for juice that's been in barrel for nearly two years, but keep in mind that it won't be bottled for another 18 months. Still, it's likely to be a knockout. (I also tasted a very pure and vibrant sample of Brunate, which was a sour cherry fruit bomb with a liqueur-like ripeness supported by powerful spine, but I was not able to try the barrel of Le Coste.) 93-96 points
